The PlayStation 4's main selling point will not be its rumored beefed-up hardware specifications, but rather how it will introduce new play options.

That's according to an unnamed Sony official, who told Japanese newspaper Nikkei (via Engadget) that Sony will push the platform as a home entertainment "nerve center."

More specifically, the source said Sony will focus on the PS4's ability to connect and share with mobile devices--widely perceived as competition to traditional gaming platforms.

Sony is expected to officially announce the PS4 during a PlayStation Meeting event in New York City on February 20. GameSpot will be in attendance at the event, which will also be live-streamed.
